the disease most dreaded by human

The government authorities at Wash

make a thorough test of this new leper

plants have arrived at the Hawaiian
agricultural exDerimeut station, where
they will be carefully propagated and

will be distributed in our leper island,

The plant is commonly called "tua

Venezuela makes an interesting story.
This priest. Father A. Valderrama, has

The oriest immediately rented a small
house in the neighlvorhood and com

whose flesh recovered its softness and
natural color, ami later his whole as

At the time the priest's report closed
the older leper was also fast recover

Venezuela that a chemist of MaracailM
has commenced the preparation of two
forms of leprosy cure therefrom.
Mr. t'hesnut. one of the botanical

it in three doses each day of treatment.
They also compounded the leiiefieinl

BOER PLANS FOR SUCCESS.
Siratesrw Employed to Deceive Eng
land Disclosed by General Joobert
"'To Pretoria" the British cry, is on
a level with tLe Parisian cry of 1STU,
A Berlin:' "
This is au extract from a letter writ
ten by General Joubert from Lady-
sunt u under date or Oct. to a con
tributor to the Berlin Gazette, in which
paper it was published in full. Other
passages which at this juueture will
be read with peculiar interest follow:
"Kver siuce the infamous Jameson
raid of lMHi our government was con
vinced that some disreputable charac
ters would urge Euglaud to war. Its
uieuutug could not be mistaken. It
could have for its sole object only the
annihilation of the Boer republic. We
were equally sure that we would have
to depend on our own resources, for,
although we knew that this war would
meet with the uuanimous condemna
tion of all Euroiean powers, we did
not anticipate that any of them would
eutninou streugth to come to our res
cue. F-ugland's arrogance and her
strong navy have so cowed the Euro
lH?an iowers that they dare not bid her
stop in her despicable laud grabbing,
not even where their ovyu interests
are Involved. Knowing these circum
stances, we depended solely ou our
selves, improved our means of defense
and tried to keep the English in the
dark as to our real preparations. To
this purpose we gave their disguised
spies access to our antiquated guns
and artillery, but were very careful to
conceal from them our modern artil
lery parks. Our calculations proved
correct. The English public credited
these misleading reports. Their cry.
To Pretoria:' is on a level with the
Parisian cry of 1870, 'A IU?rliu:'
"Your letter lays much stress on the
numerical superiority of the Euglish;
but. in my opinion, the example Is a
different one. England cannot seud
more than 85.UOO soldiers to the Trans
vaal without withdrawing all her
troops from the colonies. This in it
self is, an Imposing army, but only half
of them will be available. Graining
that England will have effected the
lauding of her troops by the middle of
December, she will have lost in the
meantime at least 10.00O through
deaths, casualties, desertions and cap
tures. Their number would aceord&ig
ly be reduced to 7o,000. Wc will rtry
to prevent the junctiou of the EngCish
forces under Buller, but even if we
should not succeed the English willlbo
uuable to put more than 35.IKM1 moniin
the field against us. The rest will 'be
needed for garrisons and protectiouiof
their bases of operations.

ing provisions in case their position be

carried into our own country, of which
there are no prospects at present, our
advantages would become greater yet,
for. while facing unknown conditions
in Natal and in the south, we are quite
able to make use of the splendid op
portunities of defense which our own
country offers. ,
"The enemy will meet a very stub
born resistance in the Transvaal and
Orange Free SState. and every inch-of
ground will cost them dear. You cor- j
rectly suggest that we most likely;
would resort to guerrilla tactics. A!
few months will be sufficient to show
to Engliud the Impossibility of the
task she has undertaken. Her losses
will be tremendous."

Chances to Cut Throats That 'Are "ot
Often Taken Advantage Ot-Xsrrow
Escapes From Serious Mia ha pa A
"Did it ever strike you," asked the
little barber, "how easy it would be
for the mau that shaves you to kill
The man iu the chair sat up quickly
and looked carefully at the barber,
who was feeling the edge of the razor
with oue linger. The barber smiled
to reassure his customer and said:
"It seems a queer question. I know,
but it is a wouder to me that there
are not a number of people killed Iu
that way every year. It would be
the easiest thing iu the world for the
barber as he wielded his razor to make
one sweep with it and sever the jugu
lar veiu. and you would be dead almost
on the instant. Supiose. for Instance,
that the barber should go iusaue.
There would lie nothiug to prevent
his doing such a thing, and you would
have no warning nor any opportunity
to save yourself.
"There is always a chance of a seri
ous accident happening to the man in
the chair. 1 have seen a number of
such accidents aud have a horror of
even nicking the man I am shaving.
In fact, such au occurrence tuakes me
feel out of sorts for the rest of the
day. It was only a few days ago that
I almost had au accident that gave
me a great fright and completely un
nerved me. 1 was shaving a youug
man, and in passing from oue side of
the chair to the other a button of my
waistcoat caught iu his hair. It pulled
a trifle, aud he moved his head sud
denly just as I went to put the. blade
to his face. I came within an ace of
slashing him, and only a quick jump
back saved him. The perspiration
stood out on me. and I had to call one
of the other men to finish shaving my
Hut the worst accident I ever saw
in a barber shop occurred while I was
working iu a small town In the west
One or the patrons of the place . was
a business man whose S-year-old
daughter was lying at the point of
death. Her father put in most of his
time at her bedside. One afternoon
while she was asleep he came Iu hero
to get shaved. He was so exhausted
through lack of sleep that he fell
asleep Immediately after he had taken
his seat in the chair next to the one
behind which I was at work.
"He dreamed that some one had
come into the place to tell him that
his child had died. With a cry of
alarm he started up just as the barber
laid the razor against his neck. Into
the flesh it sank. He was not yet
thoroughly awake, and as he imagined
that some one was holding him back
from his child he threw out his hand
to free himself, and his lingers closed
over the made of the razor, r-o dazed
was he that lie could not realize what
had happened, but sat there iu the
chair, with the blood streaming from
his throat and lingers.
"The man who had done the cutting
was the first to act, although half
crazed. He hurried for a doctor while
we stanched the flow of blood the best
we knew how. Even as the doctor
was at work sewing up the wounds
a messenger came to say that the little
girl had died suddenly in the greatest
agony, calling for her father just be
fore she died. He vas under the in
fluence of ether at the time and did
not know, but afterward, when he
heard of the circumstances attending
her (loath, he insisted that he had
heard her call as he lay there asleep
iu the chair and that it was her cry
that had caused him to make his sud

tinned to shave in the same shop
where it had occurred, anil it was
never mentioned. lie carried a re
minder of it for the remainder of his
life. In addition to the scar on his
throat, the lingers of his right hand
were all drawn up and useless.
"Sudden movements while in the bar
ber's chair are always apt to be attend
ed with serious results, and I could re
call dozeus of instances where it bus
been only the merest chance that has
prevented serious if uot fatal mishaps,
Niue times out of ten where the person
getting shaved receives a nick aud lays
the. blame ou the barber he should
thank the wielder of the razor that it
was no worse. The probabilities are
that it was quick action by the barber
that prevented a bad cut, A slight
nick often would have been a caso for
the doctor or coroner were it uot for
the watchfulness of the barber. Here
yesterday I happened to draw blood
from a young fellow's face near his
ear, aud he made a great fuss about it.
until I showed him that it was only
the sudden withdrawal or the razor
which resulted iu the slight nick that
prevented him losing a good part of his
ear. lhen he was graterul and thank
ed me, lesidcs promising to be more
careful In the future.
But there are other ways the barber
has of getting even," continued the lit
tle barber after relatherlng oue side of
his customer's face. "There is no need
of his slashing a man. He can inflict
injuries that will make his victim de
cidedly uncomfortable, and at the same
time the latter will not be aware of
what Is being done." What the barber
meant by this last remark his victim
did not ask. New York Sun.
